Benalmadena is a municipality in the province of Malaga. The town is made up of three main areas: Benalmadena Costa, Benalmadena Pueblo and Arroyo de la Miel.

The city of Malaga, which also houses the nearest international airport, is only 12km away to the west, and the stunning and internationally renowned Marbella is just 42 km to the east.

The area has expanded extremely quickly in recent decades due to the influx of tourism and has become one of the Costa del Sol’s most frequented tourist spots.


Benalmadena benefits from a comfortable subtropical Mediterranean climate, which results in the area receiving hot summers and reasonably warm winters.

Temperatures typically range from an average of around 30ºC in summer and 16ºC in winter. However, the cooling breezes that blow in from the sea ensure that the summer heat is comfortable and enjoyable.

Benalmadena is home to many great cultural events just like much of the rest of Spain. These include the Festival de Verano (Summer Festival), where you get to a proper Spanish fiesta with live music, street theatre and a range of other activities.

During summer you can also watch films on the beach for free during Cine de Verano.

If the party atmosphere isn’t for you then there are still other cultural experiences for you to take in including a visit to the Buddhist Enlightenment Stupa in Benalmadena Pueblo.

It is the largest Stupa in the Western world standing 33 metres tall and is a point of interest for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.
